|Failed TV Pilot: "Meet The O'Briens" (1954)|
Failed TV pilot called "Meet The O'Briens". Made in 1954, This TV pilot seems more like a 40's comedy short than a 50's TV program. It's easy to see why this wasn't picked up, As although it is fairly funny, they would of ran out of storylines quickly. I don't know much about this pilot. If anyone could get some info on this pilot, that would be useful.

|Failed TV Pilot: "Let's Join Joanie" (1950)|
Failed TV pilot from 1950 called "Let's Join Joanie". Two years before she starred in the semi-popular 50's sitcom "I Married Joan", Joan Davis did this unsuccessful pilot. I don't know much about this pilot, Which curiously runs 33 minutes long despite the fact that it features no commercials. Don't watch it expecting comedy gold, But it does have historic value, and is kinda amusing. The picture quality is horrible...

A bizarre 1952 TV pilot for "The Spike Jones Show", a comedy/variety show. The pilot was not picked up, but Spike Jones did eventually host a series on TV: In 1954 he hosted a mid-season replacement, in 1957 he hosted a summer replacement, and in 1961 he hosted yet another series. (if there's anything wrong with this upload, please let me know).
